Darkness
A Poem by Liora Leah

Darkness is not to be feared, but embraced

From the darkness of the womb we are born

Through the darkness of death we return to Source

Within the darkness of space

we see the light of the moon and stars

The darkness of night gives way to the light of day

The darkness of our Soul

is illuminated by the Light of Knowing

It is the balance of Darkness and Light within our Soul

that brings us into Universal Harmony with the Creation

Darkness lends strength and power to Light

for without Darkness there will be no Light

I found this poem earlier today as it made me think of my own life and all the struggles I have had to deal with and still do. They are never forgotten because they are constantly always lingering in my own thoughts. I had talked to a good friend earlier on FOJG and she was having a bid of a trying time her self. Not much I could say to her except what every one else had been telling me a lot of these days. Things may seem hard now for her, but in time situations seem to better themselves in one way or another. Ya know, it is a lot easier to say that to other people than to actually believe in it myself. I just remember so many people telling me that not to long ago , and I just couldn't find much peace in that thought. I felt as people just said that because they didn't know what else to say. But no matter how my life is right now, I know things will work out over time. Every day seems to be a little more hope then the day before and I do find myself becoming a stronger person than I was before. For awhile there I thought that because I walked away from a marriage that did not make me happy, and also leaving my children after 11 years to go back to work made me some kind of failure.I felt so guilty. I thought there was something totally wrong with me. But through time I realized that great things can come from feeling a bit of pain and struggle. Great things can also come from taking that hard step into a direction you want to go. Like they say, when one door closes, another one opens. It really is true if you belive in it. I have gained a lot in the last few months that I hadn't felt in so many years. I have found a special friendship that didn't think could really ever happen. A friendship that was found in special people, in myself, and life in general. All that came after a little darkness.......Sure, there will be more dark days ahead of me, but at least I will not let it keep me from going down the roads that will make me happy.........

"Don't give up

Its just the hurt inside

When your lost inside

I'll...I'll be there to find you

Don't give up

Because you want to burn bright

If darkness blinds you

I...I will shine to guide you"...........Josh Groban
